    Hi Amy, thank you. Yes, I have a few. 5 pullets and 1 cockerel. I hatched them from some eggs I bought from Fay at Frizzed Feathers Farm. A very nice lady. I also hatched 1 black mottled pullet and 2 black cockerels. They are really shaping up. Here are a few more pictures.

    Quote:You might want to re-post this under the health and emergency section, but my first thought was that you might just be picking them up right after they've taken a drink of water. When you do that you'll usually put pressure under their crop and that will force the water back up and out their mouths and noses. It's not generally serious, but I try to avoid it because I'm afraid they choke or even possibly suffocate.

    same with mine but sometimes it's when you hold them upside down, gravity makes the water fall out

    i love seeing all of the pictures of cochins grown up :) mine are about a month old and i think they are an awesome looking chicken! i don't know what i have ( in terms of gender) but i'm really hoping that out of the 6 i have either at least one hen, or at least one rooster!

    does anyone know if putting silkies with cochins would be a good idea, or not?? thanks!!
